Driftwood – room for improvement

These dead branches at the base of the dune on Rainbow beach caught my eye with the timber against the coloured sands. I’m really in two minds about whether I like this photo – the colours and the lines I like but I have focussed too far back into the image and the blurred branches at the front are distracting. I should have used a smaller aperture to get more depth of focus in the image but still gotten the dunes nice and blurred.

Anyone have any ideas on a better composition for this one? I’m thinking maybe getting lower to put the main trunks more against the dunes rather than the rather bland beach colours. Oh well – I’ll just have to go back sometime.
